Each year World Action on Salt and Health organise an annual campaign World Salt Awareness Week to help raise public awareness of the damaging effect of too much salt to our health. Our campaign has been running for 12 years, each year with a different theme.
The annual campaign is our chance to talk directly to the general public, shining a light on the hidden salt in our favourite food products and encouraging those who don't want their food, and their children's food, laden with unnecessary salt to take action. We also aim to encourage the public to add less salt to their food while cooking or when at the table.
We produce posters, leaflets and factsheets, which are then distributed to our members to hold their own local campaigns. Each year more than 15 countries get involved in the campaign.
Details of our 2019 World Salt Awareness Week will be posted soon!
